RFK Jr. Makes Shocking Statement About 9/11

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent running for president, declared on Friday that he “won’t take sides” when it came to the facts surrounding the 9/11 attacks but that, should he win, he would prioritize openness.

Kennedy stated in a post on the social media site X that while it is impossible to tell what is a conspiracy theory and what isn’t because the government “routinely” lies, he would not support one side in 9/11 conspiracies.

Shortly after, Kennedy wrote a follow-up comment in which he clarified that he was alluding to a recent CBS “60 Minutes” piece that explored Saudi Arabia’s potential participation in the attacks.

“My take on 9/11: It’s hard to tell what is a conspiracy theory and what isn’t. But conspiracy theories flourish when the government routinely lies to the public. As President I won’t take sides on 9/11 or any of the other debates. But I can promise is that I will open the files and usher in a new era of transparency.”  RFK Jr. Said.

Although many have claimed that the Saudi government assisted in the attacks or was at least complicit in them, the federal government’s investigation of the 9/11 attacks determined that only the terrorist organization al Qaeda was responsible for the assaults.

A few 9/11 victims’ families have demanded further details regarding potential Saudi complicity in the assaults.

President Biden, former President Trump, and legislators have been urged to respond to the disclosure by a group of 9/11 survivors and their families.

The Saudi government claims the film solely depicts tourism and has tried desperately to deny any role in the attacks.
